Do you still buy flowers only a couple of times a year? As soon as you know the most beautiful florists in Madrid, you will do it a couple of times A WEEK. For a long time the florists stopped being those chaotic and humid places where one would buy flowers once or twice a year. Now, they are bright spaces and with attention to detail, some of which are so wonderful that they also function as a café or TV recording set. You can buy flowers in a franchise that exist in the city, but the experience is not the same or anything. You don’t believe me?
Moss Floristas (calle Ramón de la Cruz, 51)
Of the most beautiful florists in Madrid, this is the one that has a certain Italian déjà vu. It reminds me of the interior of a fresh house in Tuscany in one of those torrid summers. Colorful ceramic floors, wooden trunks and an abundance of ocher tones create a fantastic sensation: time seems to stop there. They make arrangements with a very natural air, as if they were bouquets of flowers that they just picked in the field. But like its space, everything is taken care of down to the smallest detail.
Cacto-Cacto (calle Fernando VI, 6)
Yes, you can be one of the most beautiful florists in Madrid and at the same time sell only cactus and succulents. Because here they have plants of all sizes, and also flowers, or did you not know that the cactus also has flowers? This and many other things is what you learn when you cross the door of this space, which is very useful when you want to give away plants that are foolproof for those with forgetfulness regarding irrigation, among which I include myself. They also have 2-meter-high cactus, but the size does not take you back. Each and every one of the plants they sell will ship to your home.
Orquídea Drácula (calle Amaniel, 20)
The neighborhood is always on fire when we talk about new trends, that if Panic‘s bread, cheeses from Quesería Cultivo … and in the world of flowers it would not be less. Besides being one of the most beautiful florists in Madrid, it is also one of the most crazy and creative. Its owner Felipe is considered by the magazine AD as one of the new florist talents, and reasons are not lacking. His specialty is to reinvent the preconceived ideas of the clients and leave them amazed. His originality has resulted in participation with its “floral laboratory” in many design and fashion editorials.
Savia Bruta (travesía del Reloj, 4)
Its location next to the Plaza de España is a small break in the center of the maelstrom. They have two highly developed aspects: the floral decoration for weddings and events and, on the other hand, they prepare flower centerpieces that they send to all of Spain. In addition, they offer exclusive workshops for a maximum of 8 people where they try to transmit their passion for the world of flowers. It couldn’t be any different, everything that I have told you before is also reflected in their store, one of the most beautiful florists in Madrid.
Botanyco (calle de Santa Engracia, 59)
Petite, but taken care of down to the smallest detail. Little by little, in the less than the 6 months it has been open, it has already captured the hearts of flower lovers in Chamberí. It has a very particular style, between bohemian and romantic, and it’s a luxury to enter there if only to browse. Although I’m sure that you’ll leave with something. From the most beautiful florists in Madrid, it’s one of those where prices don’t go all the way to the top of the vine.
Salón des Fleurs (calle de Guzmán el Bueno, 106)
Not only is it one of the most beautiful florists in Madrid, it is also a tea room. Just as it sounds. It’s like drinking coffee in a small botanical garden. Each table and each chair or armchair are different and its large window to the street to watch the rain while having hot tea is ideal. As if it were taken directly from Pinterest, but brought to real life. But beware, here is not just empty posture: their tea is of great quality as is their unique violet cake. And for everything related to flowers, ask for Pablo, a professional with more than 20 years of experience behind him.
Plántate Café (calle del Mesón de Paredes, 28)
No, it is not a “flower shop” to use, in fact it is included is my list of specialty coffee in Madrid. They have one of the best specialty coffees in the entire city, and of course, in Lavapiés. They are super nice and a stand under one of their spectacular plants is a gift, but you can recreate the experience in your home. They sell all the plants of the cafeteria! Owner Kevin has created a mini-jungle in the neighborhood and wants everyone to reproduce it at home.
I am of the opinion that going to buy flowers has to be like having a good cocktail or finding that decorative object that seems to be made for you. That it is necessary to do it without hurries, in a pleasant atmosphere and always advised by authentic professionals on the subject. Surely there are other places you could go, but in the most beautiful flower shops in Madrid the floral gets a new dimension. And buying there is a joy!
